Could you imagine if that were true?

Let's talk about LaDavid Johnson and how he died.

No let's not dishonor him any more than that heartless bastard had already done.

That's One.. then there's??? You guys all know this one lie. What does that tell you that everyone brings this one up. Because there aren't any others? I mean in eight years he must have lied about something else.
Right? Right?

So, who is tracking how much the Washington Post or AlterNet lie on a daily basis?

You can't access the WaPo article...didn't want to post the link to the source in case some of us can? Here, I'll help you with that:

WaPo Article

It's not behind a pay wall that I can see...

Also, here is the interactive graph that you can manipulate to see different genres of lies, so to speak. That page also has a list of the most repeated claims made by Trump. No pay wall there, either, that I can see.

SPOILER ALERT!: They aren't all lies or even misleading comments, they are just simply spun to make him look better (like all presidents do). There are a few lies in there, but most just seem to be opinionated spin.

Also, unlike your quotes from your silly source ("AlterNet"...really?), the original WaPo article at least notes in its headline that:

President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days

Regardless, this isn't really a story worth making a big deal over, but I did want to call out the ridiculousness of things claimed in both sources. I mean, consider this point made on the second WaPo link listed:

“We have the highest stock market we've ever had.”

This isn't a lie at all, but they list it as one of the "false or misleading claims" noted in their headline, and they note that it happened 57 times. So, of the 1,628 number that they cite, 57 of those are this repeated claim that isn't even a lie or misleading. That's just one example of many where they did the exact same thing. I'd be willing to be that at least half of their total does not constitute a lie or a misleading statement.

So, yeah, this is just plain ridiculous nonsense meant to incite a base of left-wingers incapable of critical thinking. You took the bait.

Marxist?

No, Obama was far from that. Centre right corporatist perhaps, but not a Marxist. He would have had to have had some sort of socialist leaning for that to be the case, but like all Dem high ups, hes a center right market capitalism supporting drone.

Aww that's cute. You tried to cover your disgusting behavior by being dismissive.

How old are you?

Are you really implying that Obama was absolutely truthful in everything that he said to the American people on every topic that he discussed?

What are you even talking about? Is this one of your drive-by insult slings that mean nothing that you are prone to do in every political thread?

ETA: Nevermind, I misunderstood what you were saying because of a missing coma (I thought that you were accusing me of using hyperbole all of the time, but I think that you meant, "Hyperbole is a form of a lie, you know."

In any event, hyperbole is not a form of a lie, at least not one meant to be taken seriously. It's a form of exaggerating a statement to emphasize a point, not meant to be taken literally. I mean, it's right there in the definition of the word:

hy·per·bo·le

exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally

If you choose to take it literally, that's called a misunderstanding--it doesn't redefine the statement as a lie just because you didn't grasp the use of hyperbole.

wouldn't you call "Socialized Medicine" "Socialist leanings"?

While, I do agree with your statement the Dem(and Republicans/Torries/Labour/so on) higher ups do like money. I would point out that its not really capitalism. Obama gave government funds to his people(i.e socialized medicine, green jobs, and so on) for donations. That government interference with the market, again shows his socialist leanings , but I do agree with you, it's not on a marxist scale.

No... because what he put forward was NOT socialised medicine, and I would know, because thats what we have here in the UK, thank God.

What he put forward was STILL a system involving private insurers, NOT a socialised system in the least, not even a little bit socialist, actually still a horrific, capitalist clusterbang, with nothing to recommend it to anyone.

It's okay if Trump isn't truthful, because Obama isn't truthful nor is google.

Because google isn't a search engine, it's either real or fake....?

You guys are so stupid

Can you imagine if Obama had ever been caught in even one such blatant lie?


If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor?


Classic quote!! I'm not an Obama supporter, but technically he didn't lie. He just didn't finish the statement. He left out these finishing quotes:

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Only if you're willing to pay 3 times the amount you're paying today.

If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. We are not giving you any cost adjustments.

If TrumptyDumpty lies only 9 times a day, he is seriously ill!
Because every average human lies about 200-250 times a day!

Like:
How do you feel?
Good!

Even if you´re not feeling good.

Or women:
How does this dress lok?
Very good, darling...

Even if it doesn´t!

You say every you wish people a good morning or a nice day, people that you wish the exact opposite of a good morning or a nice day.

We humans lie if we open our mouths, but the most time it is for a good thing and we don`t do it even on purpose.
